How many of you are vegetarians and for what reason? I was a vegetarian for a year, vegan for three months. I would not suggest becoming a vegan to anyone, by the end of my journey I looked like a corpse. It was just too difficult to get appropriate nutrients as a vegan.
Abstaining from meat, however, did make me feel a lot healthier. Unfortunately I fell back into my old ways after I had enough of my family complaining about having to buy different foods specifically for me. Now that I'm eighteen I have more freedom when it comes to food shopping so I may consider picking it up again.
I did it mainly for health reasons, though there are tons of people out there that believe it's amoral to consume other animals. I don't really like to think about it - as long as they aren't subject to inhumane conditions. And by inhumane conditions, I mean excessive, unnecessary abuse.
